Get a Free Origin Game?

A post on Slickdeals.net describes how to get a $20 credit from EA's Origin service that can be used to make a $19.99 purchase essentially free. Apparently the credit is offered for the completion of a simple survey. Thanks Siliconera.

For free digital copies? Somebody somewhere is getting a promotion, if not a few turns at the blowjob machine as well. For the cost of bandwidth they are getting potentially millions of people to get suckered in to Origin. Now those people might never use Origin again, but of course they MIGHT go back and buy some games in the future...

This is a classic marketing strategy. The only free games are arguably the poor performing games, etc.

*EDIT* Typo.

Yeah but that's believing that EA has someone who can see "classic marketing strategy" instead of "OMG WE LOST MONIES!!!eleventyone!"
